“When I was first crowned, I was told my prizes would be $1500 (minus 500 to pay for my crown and cash), a one year supply of LALA motives makeup, to model Van Vicker’s clothing line, and a trip to Ghana to work on my platform.
My parents paid for my flight to Ghana.”

“My father paid for the hotels that we slept in. I booked the interviews that I attended, I got to meet Mrs. Konadu through the organization that I’m ambassador of.
“The things that I did for the widows were my own money. Up till today, I have not received not even a dime from the organizers but rather various threats to embarrass me and my family on social media.”
